Kernel tuning with sysctl

"While documentation for it is not widely available"

Linux documentation may not exist, but sysctl() is supposedly a standard interface - I suggest reading the BSD docs for it, they're quite comprehensive.

This is not to say, of course, that code written for BSD sysctl() will work on Linux - I highly doubt it - but I'm pretty sure the interface is exactly the same (the system call, not the sysctl program)
